Ice T was born in New Jersey.
But the 64-year-old moved to Los Angeles at around ten, attended Crenshaw High, started hustling in the mid-70s, and was affiliated with the Crips.
So the actor and rapper knows a lot about LA's gang culture.
He has been generous with that information in the past.
But he's done dispensing with that information.
In the wake of PNB Rock's death, Ice said he will no longer speak on LA gang culture because nobody bothers to listen.
"I'm done explaining LA Gang culture... MFs will not listen. It's not a game.. At all," Ice typed.
Will rappers finally start taking LA more seriously?
